  1. I've tried three makes in older Macs. I had issues with Kingston and Intel though when I moved them to a newish machine they worked flawlessly. Samsung worked well with older and newer hardware so I've stuck with that brand. I haven't tried other brands

    Loud fan in Sawtooth

    Could the thermal paste between the heat sink and the processor need replacing?

    G4 processor swaps

    Physically fitting is one thing, working is another. The MDD has been out for over 15 years and in that time I haven't seen a single person demonstrate a MDD processor in anything else. The opposite also. All those processor upgrades for the QS, DA and so forth and none of those work in the MDD. I'd love it if I could move the 1.8ghz module from my DA to my MDD.

    FlashPath SD to Floppy Disk Adapter (Actual Floppy Disk)

    I had a Sony one. As Cory5412 said you needed an App to read it. It wasn't overly fast. It was less trouble to use a reader or connect the camera to the computer. I'd bought it with the hope that I could access it like a regular but larger floppy. No such luck

    Nice find SCSI DVD drives aren't very common

    Solid State Drive for G3?

    Most computer stores should stock adapters for mounting a SSD in a 3.5" bracket
  7. AMDOS will let you run some DOS 3.3 software on a 3.5" disk
  8. I pulled out my power logix cards and I misremembered how the heat sink was mounted. There was a plastic clip that hooked onto the processor and the center of the heat sink was threaded and screwed into that clip. Pictures will help
  9. On mine the heat sinks are just glued on. I won't be home tonight until after 11 but I'll get some pics tonight or tomorrow. The G3s don't get as hot as the 604 and likely owners now aren't doing heavy computing with those machines like many were back then. Still if I had to add a heat sink I like the idea of extra cooling.
  10. I have some powerlogix cards so if you want any measurements I can do that. However if I had to make my own heat sink, I'd go bigger than stock
  11. I was given a number of acard adapters a number of years ago. Originally they had ide drives attached to them but I opted to CF adapters. Did use a SATA drive with one for a while but since I couldn't see a speed difference I went to a CF with that one too. I've been using CF & SD cards as HDs for a number of years and have yet to have one die. Maybe part of it is because I've changed my habits. I used to empty the trash right after I deleted a file. Now since the card is usually many times the size of the original HD, I now wait until I have a few hundred mb in the trash. I have this idea that I'm not constantly rewriting the same areas.
  12. There's adapters that convert ADB to USB and ones that convert USB to ADB. There's also A-B switches for both ADB and USB so I'd imagine something should be doable.

    Clicking IIe power supply (no visible damage)

    The clicking noise is generally referred to as chirping. Usually it’ll chirp if there’s no load like being unplugged. It’ll also chirp if there’s too much load. That can be because of a short or that the power supply has become so weak that any load is too much for it. Your IIe might startup if you pull all the cards out.

    Aeroflex SCSI to USB adaptor?

    I have a number of SCSI to USB adapters. Not sure of the brands. Used one once to connect a SCSI drive to a newer Mac. A lot of stores thought they would be big sellers and bought a number of them. That didn't end up being the case. I got mine when a couple of stores were tossing them. Could have had a lot more but I couldn't see much of a use for them at the time.

    Good deal. I always liked the 6500. When I had to downsize I mostly got rid of duplicate machines but I kept 2 6500s. Getting a G3 card might be a nice addition.
